The weight of a fully-loaded rack is estimated to be 1500 lbs. That figure may rise depending on what hardware is required for rack cooling.
Power is estimated to be 5500 watts. This too will depend on rack level cooling equipment.
These figures assume no external 1G Ethernet NICs.
For a breakdown of all the above, see the attached spreadsheet.
